Hatchie – Sure

So as Aapie said yesterday, its been a funny old time with him being out of action and me frankly being all over the place. Anyway, we are back now, so all is good. And like Aapie i have been using the time to catch up on some music. While doing that I came across tonight’s gem.   Look, I love a bit of Indie Pop, and frankly, i don't really trust anyone who doesn’t. Hatchie is Harriette Pilbeam,...

Yumi Zouma – Persephone

A journey that should have taken me about 15 minutes took me over an hour today. That's the way it is in Malta sometimes if there is an accident or a breakdown. But usually the sun is shining and the music is playing so it kind of makes up for it. I also had a colleague with me who i picked up on the way so I didn't subject him to my music taste so...

Mozart’s Sister – Eternally Girl

Aapie and i have been missing in action from the blog over the last couple of weeks due to travelling and it just being a generally busy time. But time to stick something up.   It will be a quick one but a lovely one. Many will have maybe come across Mozart's Sister, maybe not. Anyway, it is Carla Thompson-Hannah who hails from Montreal, Canada. Tonight's track is off her second album which was released...

Avi Buffalo – What’s In It For?

Summer is in full swing in most places (in the northern hemisphere obviously) and there is nothing like a tune that captures the feel of summer and those long evenings. I hate to admit that i had kind of forgotten about this track and i also hate to admit that it came back to my attention via an automated Spotify playlist (ahhhhhhhh). But its an absolutely glorius track so I can live with that.   I...

Generationals feat. Sarah Quintana- In Green

Just a quick one tonight (i think that may well be my catchphrase), but its a track that i have been playing a lot from a band i very much like the work of.    I have featured Generationals on the blog before, the fantastic Put A Light on from a few years back. That track is a lovely blend of roughed up beats and pop hooks. Tonight's track is more of the same although this...

Lust For Youth – Illume

So it's a really quick one from me tonight as I am pretty knackered what with work and a poorly child. But it's a track I've been listening to quite a bit since I stuck it on a Spotify playlist to remind me to check out their new album from 2016.   Im sure many will be familiar with Lust for Youth and their Scandinavian, chillwave, electro pop. For some reason this track has always stuck...

Th Radio Dept – Repeated Sodomy

After a final 2 pretty crazy weeks i am now on 2 weeks holiday, with little plans other than to relax with the family in the Malta sunshine. So my track picks for the next couple of weeks will be more about what im listening to / we are getting sent than the journey to work. Todays track was inspired by those (quite often annoying) facebook reminders of posts you put up in the past....

The Hornblower Brothers – Counting Roadkill

Every now and then a song comes along and gets stuck in your head. When that happens round summer it can end up being classed as the song of that summer or maybe just associated with that one. Well today's track has certainly got potential. Since I heard it on the Marc Riley show on 6 music while tidying the kitchen it has been on repeat ever since.   This is the first time I have...

The Magnetic Fields – Save A Secret For The Moon

It's going to be a quick one tonight but a track from one of my favourite artists/bands. I have been binging on the Magnetic Fields stuff over the last two days as I travel to and from work and then it dawned on me that I hadn't put up anything from them before, which is quite frankly outrageous. So time to rectify that.   Most people will know Stephin Merritt and his work as the Magnetic...
